Administration

Ticketing and Subscriptions Manager

Top quality customer service in a ticketing role.

  • Front-line customer service role
  • Exciting opportunity to work with one of New Zealand’s iconic performing arts organisations
  • Wellington based

If you’re after a role that offers variety, challenge and a real sense of reward, you’ve come to the right place.

The New Zealand Symphony Orchestra is one of the world’s oldest national symphony orchestras highly respected not only in New Zealand but around the world. Throughout our 69-year history we have charmed audiences with memorable and exhilarating concerts and recordings. We continue to grow and develop artistically, taking inspiring and varied programmes of music to communities throughout New Zealand.

We are currently looking for an enthusiastic and experienced Ticketing and Subscriptions Manager to join our small, but high performing team.

Reporting to the Head of Marketing and Development, you’ll manage the subscription process and day to day ticketing requirements of subscribers providing high levels of customer service to our many dedicated season subscribers and supporters. Ideally you will have a strong ticketing background and will be able to think strategically as well as do the doing.

Although experience in ticketing processes and database management would be ideal, front-line experience in membership based organisations would provide a good foundation for this role. As a people person your relationship management skills are second-to-none and you’re someone who will manage a small team of contractors by providing both leadership and training. And, needless to say, your interest in classical music and knowledge of the arts will go far here.

If you’re ready to make your mark on one of New Zealand’s most influential creative institutions, we’d love to hear from you.

Why move to Wellington?

Wellington is not only the country’s capital but also the arts hub of New Zealand. In addition to being the home of NZSO, it is also the residence of the Royal New Zealand Ballet, Chamber Music New Zealand, and the NZ Festival.

Wellington is one of ‘2015’s hottest cities’, according to BBC Travel:

Not only does Wellington have a bustling café and craft beer scene, but in 2015 the city of 200,000 people is celebrating its 150th year as New Zealand’s capital.

New Zealand has also been named the world’s best country, according to the 2014 Telegraph Travel Awards. It is the third year running that New Zealand has won best-country honours.

As well as the general high standard of living in New Zealand, one can enjoy being a part of the vibrant Wellington community, where there are numerous leisure and lifestyle activities to suit every possible palate.”

Carolyn Mills, Section Principal Harp (originally from USA): “New Zealand is a fantastic place to live and work, and I feel extremely fortunate to have found myself here. I love playing with the NZSO and am always inspired by my colleagues, and by the warmth of the people here. It’s a very easy place to feel at home.”
